The green turtle, Chelonia mydas, is a circumglobal species and a primary herbivore in marine ecosystems. Overexploitation as a food resource for human populations has resulted in drastic declines or extinction of green turtle populations in the Greater Caribbean. Attempts to manage the remaining populations on a sustainable basis are ham- pered by insufficient knowledge of demographic parameters. In particular, compensatory responses resulting from density-dependent effects have not been… Expand
